The Broncos offense has scored 40 touchdowns through the first eight weeks of the season which is the most in NFL history. Some of those touchdowns came from Peyton’s security blanket and newly discovered Julius Thomas. Well today Julius Thomas will be at the doctor’s office getting an MRI on his ankle.
On the opening drive of the second half Sunday, Thomas’ foot twisted the wrong way. He was unable to return to the game and it’s a serious concern for a player that’s dealt with two year’s worth of ankle injuries. Joel Dreessen is his backup. Through eight games, Thomas is on pace for 78 catches, 902 yards and 16 touchdowns in his breakout season.
